Auto Dunia Sdn Bhd, franchise holder of Infiniti vehicles in Malaysia, has announced the availability of the 2012 Infiniti FX. The facelifted crossover made its worldwide debut in the second half of 2011. Infiniti, Nissan’s luxury brand, was launched in Malaysia last October with a four model range.
The updated FX sports a changed front grille inspired by the Infiniti Essence Concept from Geneva 2009. There are also 20-inch alloy wheels and an updated instrument cluster, where the Fine Vision electroluminescent gauges get a more pronounced white appearance.
The FX is available here as the FX37 4WD GT. This means that under that shapely hood lives a 320 hp 3.7-litre V6 engine. Paired to 7-speed automatic transmission featuring Downshift Rev Matching and Adaptive Shift Control with magnesium paddle shifters, the FX does the century sprint in 6.8 seconds. Top speed is 235 km/h. Intelligent All-Wheel Drive automatically redistributes torque to the wheels (0:100 up to 50:50 front to rear) according to road/driving conditions.
Features include a Bose 11-speaker Premium Audio system to Intelligent Cruise Control and Around View Monitor. The latter system utilises four small wide angle cameras (front, sides and rear) to provide a virtual 360 degree view of objects around the vehicle, aiding tight spot maneuvering.
Also standard are Distance Control Assist, Lane Departure Warning and Lane Departure Prevention. The previous RM435,000 price (OTR without insurance) is unchanged.
From tomorrow till Sunday (February 23-26), the Infiniti F1 Roadshow will be held at the Bangsar Shopping Center, where the Red Bull Racing RB8 F1 car will be on display alongside the brand’s local range. The Infiniti Center is located on Jalan Raja Chulan in downtown KL.
